NYBFW left us speechless for a few weeks and we're back now ready to break all the eye-catching trends down! This Bridal Fashion Week brought new and old and certainly a mix of bold statements. Statements made in previous years were blown away with bigger & better versions, call it Bridal 2.0 on embroidery and embellishments.


Bare Backs


Hayley Paige bared it all and enlightened us with sweet statements down the runway. A few of her gowns had quotes straight out of a book called 'Property of Good Vibes' she helped write and illustrate, it really couldn't get any more original! We've seen her backs becoming more and more exposed but this particular gown gives the Bride wanting to show it all that ability. Katie May meets Hayley Paige whimsy.




Cascading Capes


Capes aren't going anywhere anytime soon ladies! Tony Ward mimics the lace pattern towards the trim of the cape really adding a flair to the cape. In previous seasons and designs dramatic capes have graced the runway but instead of plain tulle this twist on the cape takes place of a veil that may match up to a tee. Expect to see many capes and over skirts down the aisles next year.



Bubbly Bubble Sleeves


Hayley Paige brought out bubble sleeves to several different gown designs. We've seen plays on wide, bohemian sleeves but Hayley's mark on the bubble sleeve is unique, as the designer would say herself there's "zero chill when it comes to sparkle." The pairing of volume and sparkle is spectacular, NYE wedding anyone?


3D Becomes More Lively


Through extreme textures, patterns, and appliques 3D is popping out to another level next year. This trend is certainly not for the soft-spoken Bride. Galia Lahav took a dramatic play utilizing floral appliques with different dimensions. The illusion throughout combined with the over skirt really creates the sexy edginess we all love about Galia.



Flocking Back to Feathers

After a hiatus feathers have found their way back to the bridal nest. Feathers really give a playful characteristic to  wedding gowns, its certainly another trend for the bolder bride. We've seen lively feather skirts and touches of feathers through out gowns but Pronovias' play on feathers really extends the range of brides that can rock it.


Needless to say there is a lot to look forward to next year! We can't wait to share Bella's Bridal Buys with you!


Stay Playful Bella's xoxo
